A Pomona man was sentenced by a Rockland County judge to two years in state prison for raping a 14-year-old girl who worked for his wife.

Jacques Menos, 56, of Camp Hill Road, was arrested in February 2012 by Clarkstown police and charged with second-degree rape, a charge that relates to intercourse with a child 14 years of age or younger.

Menos, who has a history of arrests on sex charges, picked up the 14-year-old girl from East Ramapo High School in Spring Valley on Jan. 22, 2010.

The girl knew Menos because she worked at his wife's tutoring program in Spring Valley. Prosecutors said Menos took the girl to a motel in Clarkstown, where they had sex.

The victim told her mother about the incident about two years after it happened, prosecutors said.

A lawyer for Menos could not be reached for comment.

Menos' wife, Jodi Georges, who still runs the Focus Tutoring Group, did not return calls seeking comment

In addition to the two-year prison sentence, Rockland County Court Judge William Nelson also ruled Wednesday that Menos will be subject to seven years' supervision by the county's probation department after he is released from prison.
